Losing a loved one is never easy. Imagine the grief and despair that Mdm Dina faced a few years ago when she suddenly lost her husband, the sole breadwinner, in an accident. She had to single-handedly support her two young children, who were two years and six months old then.
To her, it felt like an eternity of pain and darkness and she felt lost and unsure of the future. Hope came from Care Corner Family Service Centre, a programme supported by Community Chest, where they counselled her and referred the family to various support services such as subsidized childcare and finding job opportunities.
Today, Mdm Dina shares her own story with single mothers, to inspire and give them hope. She is determined to turn sorrow into a motivation to help her children grow up to do well in life, and one day start a family of their own.
